The field of airway management continues to evolve. This activity is being held in response to the need for basic and advanced airway management knowledge and skills in the operating room, emergency room, intensive care unit, and non-operating room settings. The goal of this course is to teach the skills and tools of basic and advanced airway management required in elective and emergent situations, while introducing newer airway management technologies. The course will cover supraglottic airway and videolaryngoscopy devices, cricothyroidotomy and TTJV, fiberoptic intubation, retrograde intubation, techniques for airway rescue in the setting of failed intubation, and lung isolation techniques, including double-lumen tubes and wire-guided endobronchial blockade. The course this year will also address, in particular, unique difficulties that can be encountered in the pediatric patient. The course incorporates airway skills workshops and high-fidelity simulation to practice difficult airway management techniques.
